Zechariah 8


8:1 Again the word of the LORD of hosts came [to me], saying,
8:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with
 great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
8:3 Thus saith the LORD; I have returned to Zion, and will dwell
 in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city
 of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy
 mountain.
8:4 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and
 old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with
 his staff in his hand for very age.
8:5 And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls
 playing in its streets.
8:6 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it is marvelous in the eyes
 of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be
 marvelous in my eyes? saith the LORD of hosts.
8:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people
 from the east country, and from the west country;
8:8 And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of
 Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their
 God, in truth and in righteousness.
8:9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye
 that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the
 prophets, who [were] in the day [when] the foundation of the
 house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be
 built.
8:10 For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any
 hire for beast; neither [was there any] peace to him that went
 out or came in because of the affliction: for I set all men
 every one against his neighbor.
8:11 But now I [will] not [be] to the residue of this people as
 in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts.
8:12 For the seed [shall be] prosperous; the vine shall give her
 fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens
 shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this
 people to possess all these [things].
8:13 And it shall come to pass, [that] as ye were a curse among
 the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I
 save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, let your hands
 be strong.
8:14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish
 you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the LORD of
 hosts, and I repented not;
8:15 So again have I thought in these days to do good to
 Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.
8:16 These [are] the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man
 the truth to his neighbor; execute the judgment of truth and
 peace in your gates:
8:17 And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his
 neighbor; and love no false oath: for all these [are things]
 that I hate, saith the LORD.
8:18 And the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying,
8:19 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth
 [month], and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the
 seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of
 Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the
 truth and peace.
8:20 Thus saith the LORD of hosts: [It shall] yet [come to
 pass], that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of
 many cities:
8:21 And the inhabitants of one [city] shall go to another,
 saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek
 the LORD of hosts: I will go also.
8:22 And many people and strong nations shall come to seek the
 LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.
8:23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts: In those days [it shall come
 to pass], that ten men out of all languages of the nations,
 shall take hold, shall even take hold of the skirt of him that
 is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard [that]
 God [is] with you.
